"Lay Me Down"

"Why Do You Love Me" is a song recorded by Adele, taken from her third studio album, 25. It appears as the third bonus track on the Target and Japanese deluxe editions of the album. The song was written by Adele and Rick Nowels and produced by Ariel Rechtshaid. Originally considered for inclusion on the standard edition of 25, "Why Do You Love Me" was cut from the album at the last minute and added later as a bonus track.

Background Edit

Adele revealed to Rolling Stone that "Why Do You Love Me" was originally included on 25, but was cut at the last minute and added back in later as a bonus track:

I don't want to put a song on because only I fucking connect with it. And 'Why Do You Love Me,' I felt like no one else was really connecting with – in terms of my friends and people that I work with. I loved it, but everyone else was just like, 'eh' whenever they heard it.[1]

LyricsEdit

Why do you love me, do you love me?
Why do you love me, do you love me?
Why do you love me, do you love me?
Why do you love me?
Why do you love me, do you love me?
Why do you love me, do you love me?
Why do you love me, do you love me?
Why do you love me?

Why do you love me?
There must be something in the water
Cause baby I'm in deeper than I knew
How do you keep me coming back for more
After all we've been through
I can't decide if I should run and hide

It's above and beyond me, it's out of my hands
Your love drives me crazy, it's hard to understand just why
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me

Who knows why I love you
It could be something in the air I breath
Whatever it is, I depend on it
Where does the time go?
I spend every single moment daydreaming of you
I can't describe how I feel, it feels right

It's above and beyond me, it's out of my hands
Your love drives me crazy, it's hard to understand just why
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me

You were a shot in the dark that blew me away
And you left your mark and it never will fade
You ignited a spark, let the fires away
Are you ready, ready?
You have a place in my heart that will always be yours
You are the peak and dark of my universe
Every piece and part, you were the first
I am ready, ready

It's above and beyond me, it's out of my hands
Your love drives me crazy, it's hard to understand just why
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you

It's above and beyond me, it's out of my hands
Your love drives me crazy, it's hard to understand just why
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me

Why do you love me, do you love me?
Why do you love me, do you love me?
Why do you love me, do you love me?
Why do you love me, do you love me?
